Close To You

ABS-CBN Film Productions Inc.
Directed by: Cathy Garcia-Molina
Genre: Drama-Comedy
Cast: John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Sam Milby
Released date: February 14, 2006
Manuel (John Lloyd) and Marian (Bea) have been best friends since they were kids. They are so close that they know each other's secrets...well, almost. For the last last 16 years, Manuel never had the courage to tell Marian how much he loves her.
On the other hand, Marian sees Manuel as no more than her best friend. Marian's greatest love has always been Lance (Sam), a classmate who protected her from bullies back in grade school. Ever since Lance and his family migrated to the US ten years ago, Marian never had the chance to establish contact with him again. The only thing that Marian knows is that Lance has become the lead singer of the new American rock band, Orion.
Good fortune smiles on Marian when Orion decides to tour the Philippines. Marian is intent on seeing Lance again, and she brings Manuel with her on a chase that brings them around the Philippines and abroad. Manuel believes that the whole chase is futile because a popular star like Lance will not remember a simple girl like Marian, but Marian does not believe him.
When Lance and Marian finally meet again, sparks fly between them. Marian now has to decide - Will he let his best friend be happy with her Prince Charming, or will he fight for the love that has kept him alive for the last 16 years?
